ALGEBRA 1-2 CHAPTER 1 SECTION 1-7: THE DISTRIBUTIVE PROPERTY OBJECTIVE: To use the Distributive Property to simplify expressions 1) The Distributive Property states for any numbers a, b, and c, a(b + c) = ab + ac (b + c)a = ba + ca a(b – c) = ab – ac (b – c)a = ba – ca 2) A Term is a number, a variable, or the product of a number and one or more variables. 3) A Constant is a term that has no variables. 4) A Coefficient is a numerical factor of a term. 5) Like Terms have the same variable factors
1) What is the simplified form of each expression:a) 7(x + 3) b) (4b - 1)(-6)2) What sum or difference is equivalent to 13 - 3x33) What is the simplified form of -(-3 + 3w)
4) Simplify: -4(x + 2y) - 2(2y2- 3x)Homework Pg, 50-52, 9-63 odd, 65-90 all
